CASE CLOSED … what really happened in the 2001 anthrax attacks?

    Dr. Roy, doing the later experiment with Dr. Ivins, presently is an associate professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Tulane University School of Medicine and also the Director of the Infectious Disease Aerobiology Program at the Tulane National Primate Research Center. His research focuses on respiratory health and the aerobiology of airborne infectious diseases. His present focus is on characterizing the biological precursors involved in initial host response to disease agents transmitted by aerosol, with particular interest in pathogens considered to be biological threat agents, as well as naturally emerging infectious diseases that are aerosol transmissible. He has published over 40 original research articles and a number of book chapters and reviews in applied microbiology, high containment infectious disease research, medical product evaluation, and aerosol science. He holds a number of patents in the area of biomedical instrumentation. Prior to his appointment at Tulane University, he served as the Aerosol Sciences Team Leader at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick, Maryland. Concurrent to his tenure at USAMRIID, he cofounded Biaera Technologies, a biotechnology company based around his biomedical instrumentation systems.

    He was co-inventor with Justin M. Hartings of “Automated inhalation toxicology exposure system.”

    In coming to understand the dried aerosol project launched at USAMRIID, reporters should interview experts to establish the history of the project. For example, Dr. Justin M. Hartings would be a quotable expert. Trained at Yale University as an optical physicist specializing in aerosols, he was assigned to USAMRIID’s Department of Aerobiology and Product Evaluation in 2000 as a captain in the US Army. Dr. Hartings served the Aerobiology Department as the Chief of Aerosol Services and later as the Director of Aerosol Research. As the Aerosol Service Chief, he was responsible for supervising all of the aerosol procedures at USAMRIID. His responsibilities included training of staff, equipment development, acquisition and maintenance, quality control, coordination with investigators, and aerosol characterization and reporting. In this capacity, Dr. Hartings supervised hundreds of aerosol studies involving rodents, rabbits, and other species using the full complement of BSL-3 and BSL-4 level select agents.
